Sorry this review is a bit late, we stayed in May with our two young children who are 4 and 2.
North Berwick is a beautiful place and the apartment felt like a home from home. Prior to arrival the owner provided me with a document of activities and places to eat when I enquired about keeping young children occupied - this proved more than useful. The children loved being so close to the beach as did we and we spent most of our week there paddling, flying kites and making sandcastles in all weather!
We went to Edinburgh for a day on the train which was lovely. It was a direct journey with only 30 mins travel each way and again the children loved the train ride and seeing Edinburgh Castle.
Another day out was spent at East Links Family Park. I've been to a few open farms/parks but this is by far the best one I've ever been to, it had everything you could think of and we enjoyed it just as much as the children.
The apartment itself was ideal, fantastic location with a comfortable and lovely feel to the place and everything you'd need whilst away from home. The toddler room was perfect for the children and they loved the variety of toys and stories that were available. Within a few mins walk there are plenty of child friendly places to eat along with the high street and a park as well as the seabird centre and the beach.
I could go on and on but all in all it was a perfect holiday and we are looking forward to going back sometime to walk up Berwick Law (we didn't think our youngest daughter's legs would make it this time!).
Thank you Lorna!

The apartment is first class, a great location, terrific views and a short walk to the beach. The space, fixtures and furnishings were excellent, the owner has done a great job in presenting this to the market. Our only complaint is we weren't there long enough - however we will most definitely be back !!! Lorna, thanks again for your thoughtfulness.
The apartment was more spacious than we had imagined and well appointed. View sitting in the bay window would have been great - but unfortunately there was long term work being carried out on the outside stone work and the whole building was covered with scaffolding and netting - which meant no views, noise during working day and dust. Definitely would recommend the apartment when building work is finished! One thing - no instructions for appliances and heating controls - would be perfect if these were provided.
Absolutely fantastic apartment with everything you need especially if travelling with young children Lorna had toys, dvd's nets, buckets spades....couldn't ask for better and our kids just loved it! Apartment was clean, tidy, decorated and furnished to a very high standard! Also free wi-fi was a massive plus for us! Beach at end of street, short distance from everything. Beautiful parks, shops etc Loved apartment and loved North Berwick ... will definitely be back! Thank you!

We were made to feel very welcome at Lornas home with wee gifts for the kids and fresh flowers on the table.
This is a lovely place to stay, less than 1 min walk to the beach and only a few mins to some great cafés and delis plus the essential seaside chipper with fresh fish. It's got a nice modern but classy feel and two large bedrooms, one with twins and one great double plus a child's room that my 4 year old and 2 year old both slept in quite happily.
North Berwick is a delight. I'd really recommend going out to see Bass Rock with Sula Boat trips and the Seabird Centre.
